I AM 95 YEARS OLD AND OF SOUND MIND. HAD AN EDUCATION AND HAVE BEEN THROUGH MANY YEARS OF PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS.
WHAT MOVIE STARS DON'T REALIZE BY GETTING INTO POLITICS IS THAT YOU HAVE "NO" CONSIDERATION FOR THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF WHAT WE BELIEVE AND FEEL. SO LIKE ME AND MANY MANY OTHERS WILL NO LONGER WATCH YOUR MOVIES OR SPEAK HIGHLY OF YOU AS AN ACTRESS. YOU HAVE JUST LOWERED YOUR ESTABLISHED REPUTATION INTO THE CATEGORY OF AN EXTREME LEFT WINGED LIBERAL DEMOCRAT WHO CANNOT STAND REPUBLICANS. TRUMP WILL TRY TO DO THE RIGHT WAY FOR AMERICA. IT IS PEOPLE LIKE YOU LIBERALS WHO TURNED THEIR BACKS ON WHAT IS DECENT BECAUSE THEY DON'T LOVE THEIR COUNTRY ONLY THEIR MONEY.

YOUR POLITICAL PERFORMANCE AT THE ACADEMY AWARDS WAS DISGRACEFUL AND UNWARRANTED. WE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF THE ACADEMY ALLOWING POLITICAL DEMOCRAT STATEMENTS EVERY YEAR.
THIS IS NOT WHAT MOVIES AND STARS ARE ALL ABOUT. STICK WITH WHAT YOU KNOW. HUG AND KISSES FOR THE POLITICIANS THAT YOU CAN BUTTER UP AND GIVE YOU TAX DEDUCTIONS.
WE WILL NEVER WATCH ANOTHER MOVIE OF YOURS AND NEVER WATCH THE ACADEMY AWARDS AGAIN. OF COURSE, I AM OLD, SO WHO CARES! RIGHT!

YOU ELITES AND THE RICH JUST FEEL SO ENTITLED TO YOUR OPINION IN THE WORLD. LOOKING LOVELY---IF YOU ONLY KNEW HOW SHAMEFUL YOU APPEARED TO THOSE WHO VOTED TRUMP. YOU ARE NOT A PATRIOT AND DO NOT WANT THE COUNTRY TO STAND FOR WHAT IS RIGHT AND ITS BEST INTEREST. THAT IS WHY A MAN LIKE TRUMP WON. THANK GOD.
AND THANK GOD OBAMA IS BEING FLUSHED IN THE TOILET. HE HAS NO LEGACY AND HILLARY WAS GOING TO CONTINUE THAT ANTI-AMERICAN'S AGENDA. A WOMAN LIKE HER SHOULD BE PUT OUT TO PASTURE ON ALL HER CHEATED MONEY SHE MADE ALL THE YEARS IN WASHINGTON. EVEN OBAMA IS WALKING OUT WITH $40M WHILE ME AS A SENIOR DIDN'T EVEN GET A RAISE IN SOCIAL SECURITY FOR 2 YEARS. HOW DARE YOU ALL. CALIFORNIA AND HOLLYWOOD NEEDS TO BE SUCK INTO THE OCEAN FROM AN EARTHQUAKE.

Im sorry if you feel that way but as you have said it po. her being a good actress does nothing to do with having an outburst love for your country. if you let her fall into her craft which is acting dont you think that it would be a better decision to go into politics. if you really dont want her to be in politics why dont you watch her movies. make her crazy rich with her craft for her to able to help other people that she wont need to go to politics just to help other people.

Dear Meryl Streep, You are a very good actress and you give the public a chance to escape to a fantasy world for a while, but that is what you get paid for, entertainment. We the People of this Nations have brains and are well capable of using it! We knew who we wanted for a President and we quietly voted for him. The other candidate was flawed and that it is why we she lost. We do not need celebrities like you speaking for us, because there are a majority of people who are smarter than you and the rest of Hollywood. You continue on about Clinton winning the majorityof the popular vote, but Trump won 33 of 50 states. We the People of this Nation do not want only California and New York voting for us. The right of the people of this Nation have the right to vote not just Liberal Calfornia and Liberal New York. Keep up with your Political rants about our President. This will be the your only way to be in the lime light, because We the People will actually start boycotting your movies, in Theaters, Cable and T.V. You will be a has been before you know it.

You trash our President every chance you get but you give a standing ovation to a child molester. What about Harvey Weinstein your dear friend? Hollywood is full of hypocrisy and dirty little secrets and they are starting to fall out of the closet. You have lost the respect of a lot of the American public if you had any respect you would have kept your opinions to yourself but no you had to do what the rest of hollyweird is doing and try to make yourself look big. All you have done is soil your reputation and you should apologize to our President, but you won't because you don't care about anyone but you. If you did I could at least have some respect for you again.

After reading this hate commentary about Meryl Streep’s criticism towards Donald trump I was kind of shocked but mostly disappointed. Why Terry Bonnel would hate in Streep for criticism towards trump seems really foolish. I mean look at what we are now as a country, The pain the tears that Donald Trump has suppressed upon us. He has made multiple mistakes that somebody has so much power shouldn’t be making. Meryl Streep was taking this opportunity to make something more for Of her career not less. For example she may be acting and some people may assume that she’s living the high life up in Hollywood when in reality herself awareness and understanding on our world espically in her golden speech touch his heart and makes happiness, is Donald Trump has never. If anything I would say she’s using her career, Power and fame to talk for the people who don’t have that voice. To me it’s amazing I wanted to say thank you for standing up for those who can’t and don’t have the power. And Terry Bonell I hope that before you embarrass your self by being a hypocrite in scolding someone for “trash talking” through trash taking them you reflect on yourself and the world we live in. Our president may have the golden title but that doesn’t mean we have to bow down. There been a million leaders I history like Hitler but they were awful people. People Gandhi and MLK where the ones hated with little government power yet they are heroes. For all we know maybe Meryl Streep will be that hero, dont shame her thank her!
